In my research program I aim to measure the rheological properties of complex fluid interfaces subject to mechanical deformation on ultrafast timescales. To do so, I will combine experimental techniques borrowed from optics, acoustics and surface science, including high-speed imaging and ultrasound. My ultimate goal is to design responsive systems with tunable properties imparted by their interfacial rheology.
